Segment: Main Topic:

The Ettinling Package: Two Players One Body!

In a display of their chaotic magical heritage, ettinlings are born two heads atop a single hulking frame. Their contorted body is mirrored in their twisted twin mind, as each head houses an individual brain with its own personality, thoughts, and goals.

Where there is a Will there's a Way!


One head prides itself with an imposing presence of being. The Will, as it is typically called, prefers to engage in social interactions for the ettinling, wanting its partner to remain quiet (which it rarely does). Menial tasks such as motor control are beneath its concern, preferring to be carted around by its partner. However, it does deign to maintain control of an arm and hand, allowing it some semblance of independence. The Will views its partner as dull-witted and foolish, and believes that its other half would never survive alone without the wits and cunning of the Will.


In stark contrast, the other head retains more of the primal strength of its giant heritage, demonstrated by its control of the majority of motor functions. The Way, as it may be referred to, controls both legs, the torso, and the other arm. The Way takes pride in dominating contests of physical strength and is quick to act against any imposing threat. The Way sees its partner as weak and feeble, a runt that would never survive alone without the Way being around to back up the Will's sharp tongue.
